It started from an online-love to a long distance relationship + This is my life!

Just like the title of this post, that is how my relationship with my boyfriend started. I know that this is very different from my previous posts or posts that I've been known for, such as fashion & makeup posts. However, today, I just wanted to be open with you guys (my lovely readers) about this amazing and special story about my life & about how me and my boyfriend really met.

I've actually blogged about our love story the beginning of this year, when I didn't have that much followers. But, now, I actually want to share this special story and amazing journey with you guys.

So, if you're interested, please CLICK HERE to read how me and my boyfriend really met each other. 

Anyways, it's been almost 2 years since we met & it's been already 1 year and 1 month since we got together. It hasn't been the easiest, nor has it been the hardest, but I'm just incredibly thankful & blessed to have met and known someone like him. I've gone through some tough times within this lifetime, but not as tough as he's been through. 

He has been my rock, my best friend (for that matter, my only true friend that I can ever depend on) 

Some of you guys know me as this cheerful person who lives, breaths makeup and fashion. However, what you guys don't really know is who I really am deep inside. I am a person who is full of insecurities, but at the same time, a person who is filled with dreams and aspirations. I am a person who constantly struggles to make something of myself. I am someone who cries when nobody is looking just so people won't see that certain vulnerability. I am a person who never gives up and stands strong with my head held high, but at the same time, I do get easily knocked down & get hurt. 

After I met Jae (my BF), my life didn't drastically change, but the way I see things, now is much clearer than before. Sure, we still don't agree on a few things, but that's just how it is. We don't try to force each other to change, but there are circumstances where one has to step in and be that motivation for a good change. 

Honestly, I don't know why I'm sharing this to all of you guys. I don't even know if you guys can relate or can understand where I'm coming from, but I guess, I just really want you guys to know the real me. 

I also, want to dedicate this post to my boyfriend who has always been there with me every step of the way. He has helped me grown so much! He has never sugar coated things for me and by him doing that, I am able to learn how to cope with things a lot better. And even though, we are not physically together most of the time, his heart and my heart are and will forever be next to each other, always. 


Anyways, here are videos with the both of us:




  1. I don't know what it is but I have been emotional recently and this post almost made me teary eyed. I'm so happy for you. I feel like whenever I hear about love stories I'm in awe. It's hard to find someone you love and who loves you back in today's world. [Or maybe that's just how I feel.] >.< I've been semi bitter to love recently. I think it's my own defense mechanism because I tend to fall easily and hard for guys. This time around I've been really careful. Don't get my wrong I do love and adore my bf but I don't like showing him exactly how much he really really means to me. {*hehe} Gotta keep him on his toes. =P ANYWAYSSS end my mini rant.. this is about you not me!

    I remember your story and congrats on 1 years and 1 month... I love reading your posts about when you guys see each other. It's just sooo {*AHHH!!} love in the air. It makes me smile to see you happy and goofy with your bf. A completely different side of you emerges. You're usually a beauty and fashion blogger like you said so most of your posts are factual opinions but when you have your BF post, it's all you. =]

    You guys are just tooo F*ing cute.

    <3s Serena.

  2. I don't see anything wrong with that, especially in today's generation and people tell me the same stuff but for me, it's over 3 years.... almost 4 years.

  3. I'm happy to hear about your story hun..Thank you for sharing with us about your love life..God Bless Your Relationship Hun.. Just like my story..Me and bf also meet from online and now we're together for almost 2 years already.. Very hard to find someone that who really love who we are hun and I'm glad both of us finally meet person who love who we are..=)..Happy always with your love one hun..

    Thanks once again for sharing your love story with all of us..Never get bored reading your post..

  4. This is such a cute story (^_^) It's great you two can hold a relationship being separare one from each other. I suppose that it's difficult at some times being that way...
    & I can understand you, I'm basicaly the same. I don't like to cry in front of other people, and just stay as if I were that strong or something like that...I've never had anyone who loved me. I haven't even had a good friend who I can talk to about I'm not used to talk about my feelings and that I don't know what I'm writing all these stupid things, it just won't change anything (^_^)

    Hope you're enjoying every minute you are with your boyfriend!

  5. awh...don't you just love love!

    you are my featured fashionista today! let your readers know--check it out here:

  6. I am so amazed by your story. Seriously. Most people preach about how long distance relationships just can't work, but you guys are living proof that it can. You're adorable together, and I can tell you're really in love. This post first made me teary, and then it made me smile :)

  7. Aww Nikki :) that's Kinda how my husband and i got together :) we met online.. then were dating over the summer long distance.. but he was on vacation at that time (we were in 9th grade)..

    i was only 13 years old at that time.. but i've been with him since then (i'm 24, well 25 in two weeks) and i married him :)

    so i know where you are coming from :) 2 years is a long time - so keep it up and soon you'll be over 10 years like my hubby and me! :) best of luck to you and Jae!

  8. awww i'm glad to know your full story now nikki and wish you two the best :) you're really a brave girl and so strong! sometimes it's okay to let out your vulnerability - it eases the stress and takes a big weight off your heart. i'm glad your bf is such a nice guy and caring for you because you don't deserve anything less than that.

  9. I love reading stuff about long distance relationship because I am in one as well. I met my bf thru an online support forum. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder in 2006 and I was having major anxiety in 2008 and I seek help online and came across this website.He was the first person to help me and he took the time to message me back and forth helping me cope thru this.We started as friends, then it blossom to something else. I knew it was him, I am very lucky to have finally found someone who I can say truly cares and will always going to be there for me. Ironically I'm not into online dating whatsover and in fact make fun of ppl doing that kind of stuff, and so did he. And look at us now. I love how our love was sorta like an "accident" but felt it was really meant to happen and I'm very happy to met my one true love. Oh, we've been together for 2 years now ;)

    I'm happy for you hun and your bf, more power to you and all the cute couples out there! LDR is not like any other relationship and it definitely solidify the bond between 2 people and the connection and love can never get more genuine. Take care hun xoxo

  10. Aaaww, these stories always make me smile :)

    Conggratz on 1 year &1 month Nikki! You guys look so cute together! :)

  11. I met my fiance of 2 weeks now online about 4 years ago - on Myspace to be exact. I had so many people tell me some of the same things you wrote about but what they say really doesn't matter when it comes to LOVE!

    I am happy for you :-)

  12. awwwww im so happy for u! and congrats! hope u guys will always stay strong and always happy!
